2 Rescued After Plane Crashes In Hudson River

Two people who flew out of Robbinsville Airport have been rescued from a plane that went down into the Hudson River off Yonkers.

Yonkers police say there were only two people aboard the plane, which crashed early Sunday evening 5 miles north of the George Washington Bridge. They were both wearing life vests when rescue crews arrived.

 

A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman described the plane as a Piper PA-32 single-engine aircraft. She says the pilot told local authorities that the flight departed from the Trenton-Robbinsville Airport in Robbinsville.

 

Lt. Toni Scherer of Empress Ambulance Service says the two — a man and a woman in their 30s — were treated for hypothermia and are listed in stable condition at Jacobi.

The plane was fully submerged according to WABC TV. The pilot made a mayday call before hitting the Hudson.

No word yet on what caused the plane to go down.
